Dasuya, October 25

The Dasuya police arrested a father-son duo for firing at a woman and her son and seriously injuring them at Mand Pandher village here on Saturday night. The police have lodged an FIR in this regard nominating three persons, including the two arrested, and two-three unidentified persons.

According to information received, Rajwant Kaur (44), wife of Paramjit Singh, along with her son Harleen Singh Chahal (21), had come from Phagwara to attend the wedding of her brother’s daughter. On Saturday evening, when she was attending a phone call outside the house, Tarsem Singh, his son Lovepreet Singh, alias Raja, Amritpal Singh and two-three other persons came there with weapons and opened fire on them with a rifle.

Sukhdeep Singh, a resident of Mand Pandher village, told the police that his sister’s marriage was scheduled to be solemnised on Tuesday and a DJ party was held on Friday night. As some village residents (who were invited to the party) were teasing girls, pushing them and hurling abuses during the party, the DJ was stopped which infuriated them to leave the party.

The bangle ceremony was underway on Saturday evening when his maternal uncle called from abroad. His aunt Rajwant and her son Harleen went out of the house to attend the phone call. Four persons arrived there with weapons and fired indiscriminately at his aunt and her son and fled the spot. The injured were admitted to the Dasuya Civil Hospital. Both of them suffered bullet injuries on their legs.

Dasuya DSP Munish Sharma said two of the accused, Tarsem Singh and his son Raja, had been arrested and the single barrel 12 bore rifle used in the crime recovered from them.
